Abstract:

This symposium was the primary deliverable for the HFM-138 Research Task Group also titled Adaptability in Coalition Teamwork. During this fruitful symposium many findings based on experiments in multinational teamwork have been presented, showing that different national responses to stimuli emerge in terms of goal setting, problem solving, trust, flexibility and general performance. Differences between national and multinational teams were revealed. These results lead to basic insights on how to deal with training and selecting military people in order to perform successfully in multinational teams. This work, however, cannot be considered to be complete or finished. A number of challenges ahead have been formulated that will induce more researchers from more member nations to participate in future studies in this area. These studies need to be conducted closer to the field of operations, and in closer connection with reflective, experienced commanders.
